EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR B.Bus(Hons)
Yvonne is married to Chris Pearson – and she has the sympathy of all who know them both. In October 2018, Yvonne accepted the role of Executive Director, overseeing documentation and compliance. Until the end of September 2018, Yvonne worked for over 20 years at Ramsay Health Care Limited, a publicly-listed ASX Top 50 private health care company, based at their global head office. Her experience across the areas of operations, finance, legal, company secretarial and risk management gives Yvonne invaluable experience and insights, which assist greatly in her position as an Executive Director of Quorum.
Yvonne is originally from Adelaide, where she achieved a Bachelor of Business (Honours). She has been a Justice of the Peace NSW for over 17 years. After a Wallabies game against the All-Blacks, Yvonne’s main role is to convince Chris that life is still worth living.
Colin migrated to Australia with his family in 2007, and immediately took up an operational role with Quorum. Since that time, he has progressed through the ranks to become General Manager in 2015. Previously, Colin held senior management roles in the transport industry in the UK, and served with the British Armed Forces for 7 years.
Colin’s ability to converse at all levels, and gain the trust and respect of all our stakeholders, is critical to creating win-win outcomes for all. Colin has a Diploma in Security and Risk Management, and is a licensed Security Consultant.
Christine has been the accounting and financial whizz at Quorum for almost seven years. She has a direct and forthright manner with both debtors and creditors alike, and her word can be trusted totally. She is extraordinarily gentle and kind, and has a menagerie of pets at her home, including cats, rabbits and a cockatiel – all which must drive her equally-calm partner Alan quietly mad. Christine has a photographic memory for almost every detail of our business. She loves the ballet and musicals, along with her two lovely grown-up daughters. She always listens patiently and feigns great interest when our Managing Director brings up the subject of Rugby Union.
